Welcome to Windermere!

Join me as I blog about one of the greatest places to live, work and play!

Windermere, FL is a town in Orange County that was founded in 1889.  It's a sought-after place to live due to its rich history and modern charm.  This blog will help you to learn more about Windermere, its homes and its local businesses!


Paloma Coffee Co.

If you're looking for a warm and welcoming environment to enjoy a cup of coffee, a delightful pastry or get some work done, Paloma Coffee Co. is a must!  Their mission is to build community while serving quality coffee, espresso, tea and based goods and as soon as you walk up to the entrance on Main Street, you will see that that's exactly what they're doing!


The outside patio is the perfect spot to people watch and it's almost guaranteed that in this small town, you will see a familiar face!  I always enjoy meeting clients out front so that they can see what living in Windermere is all about! 

But step inside and you're greeted by a great workspace filled with greenery and the intoxicating smell of coffee being freshly brewed!  Bring your laptop and get ready to be the most productive you've ever been!

But my favorite place to unwind with a seasonal latte is their "secret garden" out back.  It's a magical place with a living plant wall, lots of foliage for shade and, if you're lucky, a fur baby to keep you company!


Paloma recently celebrated their 5th birthday and I imagine that they'll be celebrating many more!  As a quintessential business in the Town, Paloma is sure to be a part of Windermere's long history.

Paloma Coffee Co. is located at 507 Main Street.  Their phone number is 407-876-0895 and their email address is

Parking is usually available right out front on Main Street.

Pistil Home & Garden

Have you ever heard the term Interior Plantscaping? If not, I invite you to step inside Pistil Home and Garden for an exceptional experience!


Pistil Home and Garden is a Windermere-grown home and garden store that specializes in thoughtfully curated gifts, exotic plants and truly special home decor.

And then, of course, there is the Interior Plantscaping which brings the outdoors in and adds a fresh touch to your living spaces. Pistil's dedicated team customizes their services to the unique style of each space.

They also offer an in-store arrangement bar where you can create a beautiful succulent arrangement to enjoy or gift to someone special!

Don't forget about the thoughtful selection of home decor items, like the "Life Is Better In Windermere" and "34786" pillows! If you or someone you know has a home in Windermere, they're a must-have!

So head over to Main Street and pop into the shop! Let me know how much you love it! 

Allen's Creamery


Allen's Creamery was started in 2008 as a local coffee and ice cream shop reminiscent of what the Allen family grew up with.  Quality products and outstanding service is the basis for its success.

They also carry vegan treats, which is always in plus in my eyes!

Grab some ice cream and sit outside to truly enjoy all that Windermere has to offer.  Similar to Paloma, Allen's is great for people-watching, but with the added benefit of indulging in some delicious ice cream!

Dixie Cream Café

Do you love small town diners?  If so, you are going to love Dixie Cream Cafe, their food and their hospitality!

First opening its 50s-styled doors in 2010, Dixie Cream Café is THE place to go for breakfast or lunch in Windermere!  Besides having delicious food and and excellent staff, you can enjoy their funky and unique décor, bakery and grab-and-go juice bar!

My favorite breakfast item to date is the Bananas Foster French Toast, but I also love their little (perfectly seasoned) potatoes and their HUGE, flaky biscuits!
